  • Well located park near the zenith of the Cité des sciences, the Conservatory, the philharmonie, the halls. What walk and grow at the same time. More channels are very nice with a beautiful autumn sun.

  • A really nice park. When the weather allows it this is my favorite place to go. Big space with lots of green, and a water canal passing through. There is an open air cinema for free during the summer. Many nice bars in the area too. It feels like a small evasion from urban Paris.
  • This place is a great place to visit whether you're a native or a tourist. The place has a great atmosphere throughout the day but the place really comes into it own at night. There are football matches, cards games and tons of people having fun. If you want to experience the true Paris atmosphere this is the place to go.
  • Really nice park! Makes you forget you're in a big city, and it's got plenty of activities inside at the same time! You can find inexpensive restaurants for snacks or "real" food, cafés for the sunday brunch, an area where chinese and latino dance clubs come practice every other afternoon, the geode and the cinema. Overall a good place to walk around! 4/5 stars only because it's way too dark in the evening
  • Architecturally impressive. The parc is nice in the summer.
  • Excellent park! There are many different areas - from open meadows to shady gazebos. Many playgrounds and cafes. Also, there are several museums, a submarine, a planetarium, a conservatory, a philharmonic.
